FAQFrequently Asked Questions



  • QAre the items in the Air-Tech series reusable?

    Yes! With proper washing and care, the Air-Tech series items are reusable. Please note that product longevity may vary in accordance with methods and strength of use, lubricant choice, cleaning and storage methods, and overall maintenance.
    For best results, use TENGA HOLE LOTION and always follow care instructions.

  • QAre the items in the Air-Tech series electronic?

    The Air-Tech series are not electronic and may be enjoyed manually.

  • QWhat is the difference between the TENGA CUP Series and TENGA Air-Tech Series?

    While the TENGA CUP series are single-use disposable items, the Air-Tech series are structurally similar reusable items. They have even stronger vacuum strength thanks to their airflow structure and a new air-cushion system. Cris-crossing ribs along the length of the inner sleeve allow air to flow out of the case upon insertion, and create pockets of trapped air which provide pressure from all sides, creating more intense vacuum sensations.

  • QDoes that mean the Air-Tech Series is better than the CUP Series?

    Not exactly. While reusability is great, the convenience of a single-use item is not to be set aside. The CUPs also come in a variety of types that each provide a different function, such as a malleable case, double insertion points, etc. They’re also lower in price, allowing for exploration of a variety of sensations for less.

  • QWhat is the difference between the Air-Tech Standard and the Air-Tech VC?

    VC’ stands for ‘Vacuum Compatible’, since they are compatible with TENGA’s Vacuum Controller. Enjoy even stronger vacuum suction with an electronic vacuum!
    The Air-Tech VC also feature a new band to hold the sleeve in place, and stronger suction – even without use of the Vacuum Controller!
    For more information on the Vacuum Controller, please visit its product page here.

  • QWhat is the difference between the red and silver Air-Tech VC?

    The two items are different sizes – the red Regular is our standard size, and the silver Ultra is larger. Please see further details on the item sizes below.

  • QI’m having trouble inserting, what can I do?

    Don’t forget to remove the sticker covering the air hole at the tip of the item – this allows air to flow out of the item for smooth insertion.
    Ensure that the inside of the sleeve, insertion point of the sleeve, and your member are all well lubricated.
    During use, covering this air hole after insertion will create a vacuum on the inside for an exhilarating suction sensation!

  • QThere is a cut in the end of the sleeve, is my item defective?

    Please rest assured that this is part of the item’s design, and does not indicate a damaged or defective item!
    This incision is there to allow air to flow from inside the sleeve during use with the Vacuum Controller, creating the suction sensation.

  • QHow should I use the Air-Tech VC?

    DO NOT twist the cap to open – it is a pull-off cap.
